And we’re loving it. Also: KILLA clothes. She looks amazing in that Bottega Veneta dress, even if it does look like they slapped a couple of men’s gloves on her.

      The clothes are fab, but the cover photo makes me think chic zombie apocalypse. 

      • ccinnc

        Addicted to Love + Kristen Stewart are fighting in my head.

        • Tess Danesi

          I was absolutely seeing Kristen Stewart here. I think she may have worn the Balenciaga. 

          • Jennifer C. Cash

            you finally get her out of Dior she can work a more varied/interesting/hard

          • AudreysMom

             This is what the kiss asses at Vogue were telling KStew she looked like in her layout in Paris. Hah! So out of her league. 

          • Patricia J. Dubois

            Just wish she’d pull her shoulders back once in

      • littlemac8

        OR vampira; however, this is way too chic for Bon Temps!

      • duneboi32

        She looks like a dark-haired Lena Olin in that pix

      • ChaquitaPhilly

        and that’s bad…?
        Ooooo…Zombie Apocalypse!

    • Charlotte

      She’s such a stunningly gorgeous woman.

    • RebeccaKW

      These are fierce, but I hate that Balenciaga.

      • pugluv

        But that Balenciaga looks better than the similar combo that KStew wore to the Met Gala…but I agree it is pretty wretched

        • MilaXX

           Agreed. KStew’s version was styled much too casually.

    • EveEve

      The black and white Thakoon photo is a classic.  Just wish she’d pull her shoulders back once in awhile.

    • crash1212

      Fierce. And I want that red coat….NOW.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      She looks gorgeous. Love the bold lip.
      J’adore the Thakoon dress and the Bottega Veneta with the gloves and the shrug.

    • Deac82

      When you finally get her out of Dior she can work a more varied/interesting/hard look.

    • Lina_bee

      I love the Thakoon!

    • Mrs

      Wow wow wow those Bottega Venetta dresses are wonderful.

    • MilaXX

      I think that first pic is the look Emma Stone was trying (unsuccessfully) to give. Love all of these looks and especially appreciate someone who can give more than one face in an editorial.

    • kimmeister

      She is completely unrecognizable here, except for in the black and white photo.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Kah Ruhm Bah!

    • Stefanos Mantyla

      Is the cover supposed to look pixelated like that? Especially in the hairline and the arms? I refreshed my browser to make sure the pictured loaded and settled properly.

      Other than that, great editorial. Lovely clothes.

    • Dixie Murphy Ross

      Ew, the first couple look like Kristen Stewart. The last two are amazing. The clothes are awesome throughout.

    • Jessi03

      She looks AMAZING!

    • Le_Sigh

      WANT THOSE GLOVES.  And am now thinking of getting a blood-plum lip myself.  

    • Martha Jackson Deutsch

      don’t much care for the hair and makeup, but she is beautiful and sexy nonetheless. 

    • AuntieAnonny

      The photography is pretty “meh” but those are some amazing dresses. The Thakoon one photographs especially well.

    • Gus Casals

      Look at the Model in the Balenciaga and look at Marion… she’s working the shit out of that dress in ways the pro doesn’t even begin to grasp.

      • littlemac8

        I love the top line of the bodice – I keep thinking CATWOMAN and I want to draw whiskers on her chest!

    • mjude


    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty


      I need that black dress/red coat combo so badly it hurts.

    • Saucysusan

      I love the contrast of pale skin with the dark lip color. Very dramatic & suits the dresses so well. Love the Jil Sander coat.

    • kelsita421

      love her, think she’s beautiful, but really not diggin’ the hair.

    • nannypoo

      I love what she’s doing for these clothes, but I think she’s even more beautiful when she’s photographed with her own, softer, styling.

    • Pamela

      The Thakoon looks like an antique chair I have.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      She has such an incredible face. Love her in the Thakoon.

    • vanjar

      The Jil Sander collection is amazing, with super gorgeous coats. If I had serious money, I would buy the whole collection. The Thakoon dress Marion is wearing looks interesting, would love to see the whole dress.

    • Alyssa Ball

      She looks like the girl from Grey’s Anatomy in the first picture. I had to do a double take to make sure it was definitely Marion. Not sure I love it.

    • marilyn

      The Balenciaga is just an ugly dress.  A Mondo creation on a bad day.  Nothing attractive, artistic or interesting about it.  Just 3 different fabrics slapped together.

    • CynthiaNOLA

      She looks better than the models in every single garment.

      • Shawn EH

        She’s about even with the Bottega Veneta girl, because they both did the sepulchral wine lip. I don’t get that Thakoon dress; who wants their torso to look like a caned chair?

      • NurseEllen

        Maybe it’s because she’s not stick thin?  For the most part I think clothes are worn better by someone with a more human frame to hang them on.  (Bad sentence composition but you get the idea.)  Agree she does a great job.

    • golspie

      Beautifully done – she wears the threads as well as a professional model.

    • foodycatAlicia

      Thakoon gets props for designing a cafe chair? BUT I love that the pic isn’t photoshopped to hell and gone.

    • Clueless_Jock

      Wow I didn’t realize that WSJ covered fashion.

    • Victoria Pavlova

      OUCH. She’s UNDEAD on the cover. 

    • MandyJane

      Love that Thakoon dress. 

    • Pants_are_a_must

      That’s it, we’re all doomed to wear super dark lipstick and look ridiculous this fall. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Marion Cotillard, and she is OOZING attitude in here, but even on her it’s slightly ridiculous.

    • NurseEllen

      Every one of these is a stunner.  She is really working every shot, and that Thakoon ensemble is a stunner.  Wish I could see more of the bracelet.  Gloves………might they come back?  What fun if they did!

    • Shawn EH

      Is that the same Gucci that Emma Stone wore to the Spider-Man premiere. I like it!

    • MajorBedhead

      What is it with women posing or being posed with the rolled or hunched shoulders? It’s not flattering at all. She looks like she got caught in the middle of doing the Chicken Dance in that Balenciaga dress. 

      • Esz

         I call that the “model crunch”  😉

    • loverungay

      She looks better than the models in every piece.  I do agree that those gloves look like they’re from menswear.

    • guest2visits

      Yes, that BV dress with the tattery boa is gorgeous on both Marion and the model. She’s beautiful in everything here.
      The Balenciaga dress is kind of hideous, but she makes it look good in this pic.
      (I think I love that Jil Sander shoe)

    • Sierra Delta

      She certainly owns the camera!

      Why does Gucci want us to love fungus dresses this year?

    • formerlyAnon

      Having little opportunity in my life to wear such dramatic dresses, my lust fixed on that red coat.

      Back on point, I LOVE the photo of her smiling. On some of the others her expression is so generic I find myself evaluating the makeup rather than her overall face. No chance of that on this one.

    • Fatima Siddique

      Is this for Batman? Does this mean the Tom Hardy guyditorials are on the way?

      • Esz

         I really really hope so. He’s so damn hot!

    • Mary Stone

      This is a first.  ALL of the looks look better on Mlle. Cotillard than on the models in the runway show(s).  Love it.

    • unpious

      Now that is the shot of fabulous I needed after a long day of drudgery. I will say though, I saw the first picture before the title/intro text really registered with my brain, and I thought “Oh no, Julianna Margulies, why did you cut off your hair??” But then literacy kicked back in and all was right with the world.

    • Pop Tarts Jen

      The one where she’s smiling! Oh man, she’s just so gorgeous! I love all of the photos, but that’s my favorite!

    • kikisayshi

      I am loving that Balenciaga ensemble on her!

    • quiltrx

      Is she wearing her hair like this now, or is this just for the editorial?  Because I kind of love it…has a certain Annie Lennox fierceness.

      And I kind of love that ‘rattan’ dress.

    • gabbilevy

      This look isn’t normally in Marion’s wheelhouse, but she’s knocking it out of the park (apologies for the mixed metaphors!). Take notes, Kristen Stewart. I think the Thakoon is my favorite.

    • Esz

      That dark lipstick looks fab on her! I love the third look with the leather gloves and clutch. Fierce as hell!

    • l3icest3r

      Love the Bottega Venetas. Maybe one of them will show up on the red carpet this fall. 

    • RzYoung

      That red coat is heaven!

    • greyhoundgirl

      And what a face it is!  

    • bluefish

      She looks god-awful in most all of these.  LOVE the red Jill S. car coat.  Gorgeous.

    • ccm800

      French beauty, you’re doing it right.
